Wisdom

Wisdom

Proverbs
1 My son, if you will receive my words,
And store up my commandments within you;
2 So as to turn your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you call out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures:
5 Then you will understand the fear of Yahweh,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For Yahweh gives wisdom.
Out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.

Folks today believe themselves to be wise and do not seek after wisdom. There are of course two basic kinds of wisdom, Worldly and the Wisdom of God. The world's wisdom appears to be useful and sometimes is but when viewed in the light of God's wisdom it is always found lacking.

The currant wisdom of the world proclaims that there is no need of a God, we control our own destiny. That is an interesting perspective that is worthy of inspection. Until recently, all of, science proclaimed that the Universe was previously compressed into a single lump and that it exploded, creating the universe and the planet we live on.

Without going any further into this scenario, it has problems to be overcome. First, of course, is where did the lump come from? Next we must determine what caused it to explode? A simple, but not incorrect view would be, “Who lit the fuse?” What was the detonator and where did it come from? And then there is the question, for those of us that are familiar with explosions, “What happened to smooth of all those jagged edges, making the planets, suns and stars spherical?”

There are thousands of other questions for which no answers can be found, causing many in the scientific endeavor to abandon ship on this theory that is still taught as a fact in our schools. These folks appear to be trying to postulate a new theory to examine. The one “theory” that is never to be examined is the one that is true.

Of course it is not a theory at all but is instead the truth. God created all that we see and all that we know. The Christian proves, to his or her satisfaction, the truth of this statement w3hen they believe and begin to grow strong in the faith. The world titles this as circular logic but the title is false. i.e. When I first believed the Holy spirit of God indwelt me with His presence and has been opening and teaching me the Wisdom of God ever since.

This is a condition the world can never understand because they refuse to believe the truth and believe a lie instead.
